WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (CIRCA) - Tony Greenhand gets paid to make blunt masterpieces.

The Albany, Oregon, native has gotten so good at creating "smokeable art" that his hobby has now turned into a lucrative business. 

His passion for rolling artistic joints started nine years ago.

Since then, he's created some pretty intricate and colorful smokeable art.


He was recently paid $7,000 for rolling three joints shaped like an AK-47, a golden gun and a hand grenade. He wouldn't tell Circa sister station KATU-TV who bought the large joints, only that he or she flew out from Miami to get them "for music people."

The AK joint contained 8 ounces of marijuana and took him more than 40 hours to complete.

Greenhand's art is in high demand. Orders keep him busy, rolling from sun-up to sundown.

Followers of his joint rolling adventures view his blunt creation stories in droves on Snapchat (@tonygreenhand).

Over the last three years, his following has also grown tremendously on Instagram, where he now has more than 250,000 followers. 

His 4.2-pound watermelon joint even holds a world record for largest joint smoked.

"This is what I love to do. I'd be foolish to not ... I feel like I'm good at it and, honestly, it's the best thing I've ever done.

Greenhand's hobby turned into a full-time job. He hopes to inspire others to make a career out of something they love to do.

"I hope everybody out there who works a job they hate would question it after seeing something like this," he said. "They could be doing something they love."
